This week brings Geek Hard to it’s 69th Episode! We all know this means two things. 1 – Mr. Green will be sharpening up his frat-boy wit to its sharpest, leaving no bad joke unturned. and 2 – We couldn’t do this show alone. This is an episode that Andrew and Mr. Green wanted to share. So who better to share it with than the lovely and talented author/actor/hard-core-nerdity columnist Adrienne Kress!
Adrienne with be with us the whole show to talk about her writing and to join in on the wonderful reviews we bring you each week. Here’s a quick bio on Adrienne:
Adrienne Kress is a writer and actress born and raised in Toronto, Canada. It was only natural that Adrienne, the daughter of two high school English teachers, should fall in love with both creating and performing the written word.
Inspired by a trip to the town of Bath, Adrienne wrote Alex and the Ironic Gentleman while living in London, England. Although her first book, Alex, was snapped up almost immediately by publishers around the world – UK/Commonwealth, USA, Italy, Romania, France, Greece, Belgium, Indonesia and Germany – where the translated version of her title reads as Diehalsüberkopfundkragendramatischabenteuerliche Katastrophenexpedition der Alex Morningside. Seriously. It was also featured in the New York Post as a “Post Potter Pick,” as well as on the CBS Early Show, and won the Heart of Hawick Children’s Book Award in the UK and was nominated for the Red Cedar in Canada.??The sequel to the book, Timothy and the Dragon’s Gate, has also been picked up by publishers around the world and was released in the United States, Canada and the UK and Commonwealth in early 2009. It was nominated for the Audie (USA) and the Manitoba Young Readers Choice Award (Canada). It was also recently optioned for film.
She also contributed to two anthologies in 2011: the Steampunk YA Romance short story anthology Corsets & Clockwork (Running Press Kids), and The Girl Who Was on Fire: Your Favorite Authors on Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games (Smart Pop), an essay anthology.
Her YA debut, The Friday Society, will be released by Dial in 2012.??Adrienne is presently living in Toronto where she is continuing her writing, acting and directing careers.
